Star Lord reacted in human way in 'Infinity War': Chris on Gamora's murder
Actor Chris Pratt has defended his character Star Lord, saying the way the superhero reacted to Gamora's killing in Avengers: Infinity War was "very human". The character had received a lot of flak online after he spoiled the plan to get the infinity gauntlet out of supervillain Thanos' hand in the film.
The mistake proved to be catastrophic as Thanos eventually succeeded in wiping out half the universe with the snap of his fingers.
"Look – the guy watched his mother die, he watched as his father-figure died in his arms, he was forced to kill his own biological father. And now has suffered the loss of the love of his life," Pratt told Radio Times. "So I think he reacted in a way that's very human, and I think the humanity of the Guardians of the Galaxy is what sets them apart from other superheroes. If we did it a hundred times, I wouldn't change a thing," he added.
